Prince William School is a vibrant and friendly 11-18 school (1100 students on roll) located in Oundle, within easy commuting distance from Peterborough, Stamford, Kettering, and Corby.
This is an exciting opportunity for an inspirational and ambitious teacher of Food Technology to join and lead our Art, Design and Technology team as our new Head of Department. We are looking for a Food Technology /Catering specialist, who has the ability to teach this subject up to KS5. The successful candidate will be passionate about Art, Design and Technology and have the drive to lead a forward thinking department, focused on developing exciting and engaging learning experiences.
We have fantastic students at Prince William, and we are passionate about providing them with the best possible education and we place them at the heart of everything we do. Our students are well behaved, happy, engaging, and inquisitive individuals, and they are very proud to be Prince William students. They have high aspirations and look to all our staff to guide them on their journey to success. Equally impressive are our staff who work tirelessly to achieve our excellent results and to help each student truly achieve their best. We are extremely proud to have such wonderful colleagues and grateful for the life chances they are giving our young people.
You will be joining the school at an exciting time as examination results across the whole school at both A level and GCSE have seen rapid improvement and the school is expanding. In 2018 our KS4 Progress 8 score was +0.32, putting the school in the top 19% of schools nationally for progress, and we also closed the gap between disadvantaged and non-disadvantageed students by half a grade. At KS5, the Level 3 Value Added measure is positive, showing that students continue to make great progress even after they have made such excellent progress between KS2 and KS4. WE are hoping to expand the Art, Design and Technogoly provision at KS5 next year, to include BTEC Engineering as well as Product Design, Food Technology, Textiles, and Fine Art.
We welcome applications from colleagues who want to be part of a positive and successful team in this very exciting time for the school.
The successful candidate will:
• be an enthusiastic teacher who inspires students to learn,
• is committed to delivering high-quality lessons for students of all abilities,
• be passionate about the importance of the teaching of Art, Design and Technology, and
• have a sense of humour!
• a committed and supportive team,
• good career development opportunities,
• students with good attitudes to learning and a desire to learn,
• a personalised approach to CPD,
• a caring and approachable senior management team, and if needed
• an onsite nursery run by a private company.
If you are a committed teacher who shares our passion for educating motivated and enthusiastic students, we would love to hear from you.
